At Night We Walk in Circles


The breakout bookfrom a prizewinning young writer: a breathtaking, suspenseful story of oneman’s obsessive search to find the truth of another man’s downfall

Nelson’s life is not turning out the way he hoped. Hisgirlfriend is sleeping with another man; his brother has left their SouthAmerican country and moved to the United States, leaving Nelson to care fortheir widowed mother; and his acting career can’t seem to get off the ground.That is, until he lands a starring role in a touring revival of TheIdiot President, a legendary play by Nelson’s hero, Henry Nuñez, leader ofthe storied guerrilla theater troupe Diciembre. And that’s when the realtrouble begins.

The tour takes Nelson out of the shelter of the city andacross a landscape he’s never seen, which still bears the scars of the civilwar. With each performance Nelson grows closer to his fellow actors, becominghopelessly entangled in their complicated lives until, during one memorableperformance, a long-buried betrayal surfaces to force the troupe into chaos.

Nelson’s fate is slowly revealed through theinvestigation of the narrator, a young man obsessed with Nelson’s story—andperhaps closer to it than he lets on. In sharp, vivid, and beautiful prose,Alarcón delivers a compulsively readable narrative and provocative meditationon fate, identity, and the large consequences that can result from even oursmallest choices.
